    My boss just told me to take a nap since we are pulling an all nighter and got done a few hours early. ..

    Is there anything better than sleeping on the clock?

    Getting laid on the clock is pretty damn decent.

    Funny you bring this up. There's a woman at my work who was asleep when I walked in this morning.

    She's a habitual offender. She literally logs in and falls asleep within the hour. One morning she wasn't even here for 15 minutes.

    She's a great big fat person. It's quite a sight. She falls asleep sitting upright with her chin on her chest.

    Management is aware. They do nothing about it. So when we catch her, we call her desk phone from one of the phones in the hallway and wake her up.

    PC Police would say her weight gives her sleeping rights.

    At first I thought it was some sort of health issue. But I later found out it's because she insists on staying up watching late night tv.

    She's too stupid to get a DVR. For a whole year she held off on getting a smartphone because she wasn't sure if she'd be able to login to her Dave Mathews fan club site with it.

    I routinely sleep at work.....a perk of having my own office with a door that locks.

    I get all of my busy work done early......and then fall asleep on the couch I have in here.

    It's a wonderful system.

    Years ago I managed the front desk at a hotel.

    I would conduct "room inspections" every day.

    These room inspections consisted of me taking a nap.

    I miss those days.

    We have a fat boy here that does the same shit. When he gets caught he swears that he was praying and not sleeping, management continues to baby him. This guy is as useless as a windshield wiper on a billy goats ass, eats all fucking day though. Cant reach tools and parts but doesnt have a problem getting to the microwave.

    I worked with a guy on graveyard shift at the prison many years ago that slept most of the night.
    but somehow he got up every hour to make his rounds and do count.
    we called him Sleepy Steve.

    Eating free food and watching TV is pretty good too. I had a job about 20 years ago working as a dispatcher for a small alarm monitoring company. They didn't pay much but it was always quiet (some nights there weren't any alarms at all), so all they needed was someone to be there and stay awake. I loved it because they had cable TV (including HBO), plus a VCR for movies they would get you from the local video store. They also would fill the refrigerator with whatever food and beverages you wanted, plus any leftovers they had from dinner. Most nights all I did was sit in a big comfortable chair eating ribs and wings, drinking Coke, and watching TV. My favorite job ever, unfortunately they eventually expanded and got real busy so all the fun stopped (and I quit).
